Hi and welcome.
It can be disabled - not deleted.
The question that we have to ask you, is why would you want to remove a part of Avg's protection?

AVG Online Shield is a type of a real-time resident protection. It consists of two features - Web protection and Instant Messaging protection.

Web protection scans the downloaded files even before these are downloaded to your computer. This is done by scanning communication on ports TCP 80, 3128 and 8080 by default.

Instant Messaging protection verifies the files sending via instant messaging are virus free. Currently AVG supports the ICQ, MSN and Yahoo! protocols.

Thanks for reply Blues_Harp. No desire to disable online shield merely clear those results gathered over recent months. I do occasionally like to clear stuff out which appears only to be gathering dust and I assumed old results from the online shield fell into that category. If not and it is best to leave them then so be it.
